Jack Rash 2006 Diving Accident

“Our son Jack  dove in the ocean and hit a sandbar headfirst; he was completely paralyzed from the neck down. Because we were watching, we were able to get to Jack before he drowned; he was face down and unable to move.

“I credit a quick and capable response by the Virginia Beach Rescue Squad and the Life Saving Service, and the nurses and doctors at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital with being the hands, feet, expertise, and care givers God used in saving Jack’s life and restoring him to full functionality.”

Ron Rash,

father of Jack Rash

A. Armistead 9/5/05 & 3/31/06 Health Condition

Dear Rescuers, one and all,

What great peace of mind (and body) to know I can count on you. None of us can count on the weather or our relatives or “the check that’s in the mail” but we know we can count on the Rescue Squad.

Your perceptive volunteers saved my life (COPD attack) on September 5th. Again, your team answered a frantic call from me on March 31 when both O2 machines shorted out (I am on 8 liters 24/7) your rescuers have been insightful, professional and caring.

I am apologizing for not doing more sooner, but I find I am limited to writing small checks with HUGE gratitude.

With great admiration,
A. Armistead
